Hypnosis-Courses.com trainer Dr Kate recently chatted with Azzy Aslam who hosts the Changing Habits – Changing Lives podcast series. These podcasts are focused on how the brain works and how we work as individuals. Other podcast topics include how to increase your chances of success, how to manage and make fear work for you, and even why you shouldn’t wait for others to help you.
In this particular podcast (1hr 22 mins), Dr Kate chatted with Azzy about a number of hypnosis and hypnotherapy topics. Azzy called the session a ‘mind-opening episode’ and they certainly covered a broad range of topics, from a brief history of hypnosis (and psychology’s influences), through to how hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis works. Brain activity changes in hypnotherapy were discussed as well as how, subjectively, hypnosis can ‘feel’ very different to the objective data. The topics of hypnotic depth and hypnotic phenomena, hypnotic suggestibility and sensory modalities were included, and some great examples given of how the information from these can be used to enhance the hypnosis or hypnotherapy experience and effectiveness.
The discussion then moved to some of the key types of therapy, including behavioural hypnotherapy for habit change, cognitive hypnotherapy to work with identifying limiting beliefs and generate more positive resources thinking strategies, as well as analytical approaches for insight and subconscious change, together with what how regression techniques can achieve positive changes.
An interesting point Azzy raised was about whether hypnotherapy was a mind hack. Is it a shortcut to results? Does it offer a quick fix? Did Dr Kate give him a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ answer? Find out now… Listen to the podcast:
